The 100 Pushup Challenge – Jason and Jordan from isocket on Vimeo.
It turns out, with about 4-6 weeks of pushup training 3x a week (~10 mins per session), you can do build your capacity to do something rather difficult: 100 pushups in a row.
My coworker Jordan and I spent about four weeks doing multiple sets of pushups every week, as Simon Payne is doing, via the sequence laid out in hundredpushups.com. It involves doing many sets of pushups at a time (eg: 14, 18, 14, 14, 20) with very little rest in between each set.
If you do this again and again and add a few more pushups to each set every time, your capacity to do pushups grows. There are no secrets. No weird old tips. No magic tricks.
True magic is the power of consistent progress.
Consider: if every day you improve yourself by just 1%, in 30 days you’ll be 35% better. In 90 days you’ll be nearly 250% better. In one year you’ll be almost 3700% better than you were 365 days ago. Simply through by pushing yourself a little bit harder every time and consistently improving just a little bit every day.
Over 600 people have reported completed the Hundred Pushup Program – a number that is surely undercounting dramatically. What could YOU achieve if you used the power of consistent progress?
